AWS Cloud9

AWS Cloud9 is great for product engineering and coding where you must take time to pair program and code in a specific isolated environment. It is entirely cloud based so there's no worry about saving and data consistency. It is all hosted on the Amazon Web Services cloud. It is less appropriate for more general workflows that don't require a specific cloud instance.

Azure Active Directory

[Microsoft] Azure Active Directory is perfect for single sign on. We have all our SaaS applications integrated with it. Also, the opportunity to have a single place for all the Microsoft Applications and Saas Applications using one account.Sometimes, the hybrid configuration is not appropriated for some internal non windows applications, due to the complexity.

Pros

AWS Cloud9

  • It provides an extremely intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so adapting to it does not take much time.
  • It contains the most common programming languages.
  • It allows the export of files, either directly to the repository or to the team where you want it.
  • It is housed in the cloud so you can work with it from anywhere.
  • Allows you to share code or work on them with others in real-time.
  • Does not require installation.

Azure Active Directory

  • Conditional Access -- this is one of the biggest tools that any admin needs when it comes to securing when, where, and how users are accessing information. Especially if the information contains sensitive data types.
  • Multi-factor Authentication -- we have all our employees configured for MFA. This is incredibly easy to configure with Azure, as well as defining when MFA should be used through Conditional Access.
  • Audit Logs -- being able to track and identify a user's activity is pretty critical, especially when in incident response mode.

Cons

AWS Cloud9

  • Confusing documentation - AWS's documentation remains quite confusing, and the layout of other services/settings that you have to use with Cloud9 can be a bit of a handful.
  • Sometimes slow - As the size of a project increases, the editor gets increasingly slower, and starts slowing down the browser overall.
  • Long setup process - The setup for Cloud9 can be hard and tough, especially since the documentation is quite hard to understand.

Azure Active Directory

  • There are a lot of features, so it can get confusing to get to where you want to go
  • Some areas do not offer as much granularity as desired
  • Hard to find certain features that are synonymous with on-premises Active Directory

The interface for Cloud9 needs some improvement. It is simply not as powerful and intelligent as a local text editor would be and thus it lacks the capabilities of fast filling when coding. Otherwise, I think it has a fair interface that they have tried mimicking an IDE.

Customer support is managed by the Cloud support team. I won't be able to comment on details, but it's fast.

Azure Active Directory 8.1
Based on 29 answers
Microsoft has offered Azure Active Directory as a solution for a couple of decades now, so they have seen and anticipated almost any issue that an organization may face and can therefore help. The cloud offering of Azure Active Directory offers some additional "self healing" or monitoring services that can minimize the need for a service call. However, as with most large companies supporting a fast growing market, there may be some gaps in service knowledge (and particularly processing) from the front line / tier one staff as they follow a corporate script at first contact.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Cloud9

We used Codeanywhere & Lambda, but it's little to test serverless code with these services, so I think AWS Cloud9 is best to code and test Serverless code.

Azure Active Directory

I've worked with both Okta and Auth0 at various clients. Consistently, we find that Azure Active Directory provides a more seamless experience, better integration with IT tooling, and a more developer-friendly experience. In the past Azure AD has lacked some of the customization capabilities that Okta and Auth0 provide, but that has changed (especially with External Identities).

Return on Investment

AWS Cloud9

  • It is a tool that has allowed us to optimize the life cycle of the projects since it is excellent for this because you can share code from one department to another quickly.
  • It allows to always be able to access the code from any device, at any time.
  • Save time in the installation of an IDE, plugins, compilers, etc.
  • It is ideal to use with other AWS tools since they have a great synergy, like CodeBuild, CodeCommit, CodeStar, etc.

Azure Active Directory

  • AAD has saved my organization a lot of time in user setups, restoring mailboxes or individual messages, auditing logins/logoffs or data changes and running reports.
  • It added functionality we did not previously have, such as reporting on user behavior in their systems (what they work on and what applications are used).
  • My IT Support Department has benefited greatly from adding AAD by being able to see software update needs for each workstation, managing startup items running in the system, checking versions of definitions and policies applied to each workstation and much more.
